Road Trip Day 5–Sertoma Butterfly House

Our last day in South Dakota was a magical one. I say that because we visited the Sertoma Butterfly House in Sioux Falls. Butterfly Houses are wonderful places to visit and Sertoma, with its more than 800 butterflies, is one of the best ones we have ever visited. It is a totally unreal feeling to have all these beautiful insects with their bright colors fluttering around you. If you ever have a chance to visit one of these places you won’t be disappointed.

There is also a nice pond and nature area nearby to explore. For some reason though I tend to attract mosquitoes for a 3 mile range. Peg wasn’t bitten even once while I was eaten alive.

As an added bonus once we left South Dakota we were entertained by some ground squirrels at the rest stop just over the border in Minnesota.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.


Hendersonville Cars and Coffee Photos

Over 300 cars showed up early, starting at 8:00 AM, for the recent Hendersonville Cars and Coffee cruise-in. World of Clothing in Hendersonville, NC hosted the event and cars were spread out all across their large parking lot.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
